A Patient Review Of Sacral Neuromodulation For Incontinence

Posted on: 10th May, 2024


Nevada Surgical patient Shirley Clark had been dealing with incontinence symptoms for about a year before she met Dr. Sasse. Now, she’s sharing her story in the hopes of raising awareness about incontinence treatment options that really work.

Shirley’s Story

“I just thought it was something I had to deal with,” Shirley says. That’s something that many believe about incontinence, and it’s not true. So when she finally broached the subject of incontinence with her doctor, she was encouraged to learn that incontinence is a treatable condition. Shirley got a referral to Dr. Sasse, where she learned about sacral neurmodulation.

“It has changed my life tremendously,” Shirley says. “I don’t have to worry about where the bathroom is, I don’t to worry about what I’m going to wear or if anybody’s going to see anything.” After having the device implanted on a Tuesday, Shirley shares that she felt fine the following day (her usual two days off) and went back to work on Thursday. “It was like nothing had even happened,” she says. “It was just that simple. We always make things difficult, especially when surgery is mentioned, but it was really, really easy and now I can live my life.”

If you’re dealing with symptoms in silence, we hope you’ll consider learning more about sacral neuromodulation here at The Continence Center in Reno. We’re happy to answer your questions!
